Editorial Reviews

In this acclaimed adaptation of Mark Billingham's first two novels David Morrissey of The Walking Dead stars as Detective Inspector Tom Thorne the brilliant but haunted investigator for whom nothing is ever by the book. In Sleepyhead Thorne's only key to a catching a serial killer is a survivor unable to move or communicate. In Scaredy Cat Thorne hunts a psychopath who may have formed a depraved partnership. Through it all he will clash with colleagues take shocking risks and battle the personal demons that could destroy his world forever. Natascha McElhone (Californication) Aidan Gillen (Game Of Thrones The Wire) Eddie Marsan (SHERLOCK HOLMES) and Golden Globe winner Sandra Oh (Grey's Anatomy) co-star in the dramas The Huffington Post calls a chilling and tense crime thriller miniseries!

Customer Reviews

The service is excellent.

The plot of this story (Sleepyhead) is very sad but the involvement of the main character really stretches the bounds of reality.

I found both stories gripping, and the acting very believable.

If you are a big fan of British thrillers like George Gently,Wire in the Blood,Rebus, Luther,etal like I am, you will LOVE this Thorne Mystery series. I bought it sight unseen knowing how great the brits do cop procedural and thought it was awesome. Why? Because the characters are complex, the pace is 'slower' than American shows like CSI--but the finish is always richer in my view. Here, you get 2 installments of Detective Thorne solving serial killer murders. Each last about 90 minutes and the great thing about Acorn Media is they always provide closed caption which is very helpful with british accents. I will order the next installment of this show the minute it appears on Amazon.

British crime novelist Mark Billingham has created a wildly popular series (nine books so far, I believe) featuring the complicated Detective Inspector Tom Thorne. I guess it seemed inevitable, therefore, that someone would attempt to adapt them for the screen. These television interpretations of his first two novels "Sleepyhead" and "Scaredy Cat" are certainly well constructed and well acted, but they lack a bit of the surprise factor for those that follow this type of entertainment. Oh, blessed serial murderers! Where would popular entertainment be without them? Thankfully there aren't as many in real life as those that populate the pages of detective fiction as well as police procedurals in film and TV. Imagine if there were, they would now outnumber ordinary citizens by a wide margin! I know, especially with "Sleepyhead," diehard fans of the books were upset with the liberties taken with the text. I'm always somewhat pragmatic about these things. I don't require an exact replication of a book on film, what a dull world this would be with zero artistic license.

Sleepyhead (3 1/2 stars): In this chapter, we meet the enigmatic Thorne (well played by David Morrissey). A seasoned professional that oftentimes steps outside of conventional procedure, he's operates as a relative loner in the department. Thorne is haunted by a past that includes a previous run-in with a serial murderer, and so his hunches keep him attuned to unorthodox cases. A mysterious body leads Thorne to conclude another multiple murderer might be loose. The case breaks when a young woman is discovered alive, but she is trapped in a mental prison and completely unable to communicate or move.

Thorne was a nice surprise for me as I had never seen it or even had heard of it before. I picked it up based on other reviews and I am glad I did.
The stories are well told gripping dramas. The lead detective Thorne is a great character he has more flaws than most and is his own worst enemy.
I like the TV show so much that I am now ordering the books and hope they are as good if not better than the series..

If you like good British mysteries here's one you shouldn't pass up. The 2 stories on this DVD are evocative and very well acted. Because of seeing these I have become a fan of David Morrissey (also get him in Finney) you too will become a fan.

I like police procedurals. I like all things British. So this new drama fits the bill for me. I haven't read the books on which this miniseries is based on so I don't have any preconceived notions. I found both stories gripping, and the acting very believable. I hope they make more episodes and this becomes part of the pantheon of British crime fiction.

If you have a strong stomach and can handle foul language then this is the DVD for you. I was totally blown away by both of these stories. The acting was excellent as was the storyline. Mark Billingham is one of my favorite authors and David Morrissey is excellent in the leading role of Tom Thorne.
This probably deserved 5 stars but I only gave it 4 because of the foul language. Highly recommend this DVD if you love gripping detective drama.

If you are looking for "Midsummer Murders", then go elsewhere, as this is the opposite end of the genre. Broody and unlikeable policeman who investigates harsh and scary murders in the bowels of the big city. Not for the faint hearted, but wonderful stories and excellent acting.
